How to Calibrate the MAX9979 Pin Electronics

By: Bernard Hyland

Abstract: The MAX9979 Pin Electronics device integrates 28 DACs, that can be calibrated to adjust for gain and offset errors. Calibration is done with the MAX9979's calibration registers. This calibration will result in a very linear and precise driver/PMU/comparator/active-load that will meet the most stringent demands of the tester industry.
